The menisci are intra-articular fibrocartilaginous structures that have multiple functions, including shock absorption, control of anterior tibial translation, lubrication of the joint, and possibly proprioception. Owing to its many functions and the risk of meniscectomy-associated osteoarthritis, the management of meniscal tears should include “me...

Surgical management of recurrent shoulder instability can be complicated in the setting of associated osseous defects of the glenoid, humeral head, or both. A wide variety of surgical options exist for the management of complex shoulder instability. Interventions for addressing glenoid and humeral head bone defects, and their biomechanical effects,...

Opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy is an increasingly performed procedure for treatment of varus gonarthrosis and correction of malalignment during meniscal transplantation or cartilage restoration. Precise preoperative planning and meticulous surgical technique are required to achieve an appropriate mechanical axis correction. We describe our tec...

Since the initial recognition of injury patterns specific to the superior labrum/ biceps tendon complex nearly 30 years ago, our understanding of the SLAP lesion continues to grow. Much research has gone into understanding the relevant anatomy, biomechanics, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment of these injuries. Despite...

Adhesive capsulitis is a common and challenging condition to treat. Arthroscopic capsular release is usually contemplated when conservative treatment fails or when there is severe and/or chronic loss of range of motion. This procedure can be difficult to perform because of difficult access to the joint, poor visualization, and loss of working space...
Article
Posterior shoulder instability is a rare condition that results from a variety of causes. One such cause is retroversion of the glenoid. We present a novel technique for performing a redirecting osteotomy to a more anatomic version by using instruments initially developed for a high-tibial osteotomy.

... Before considering surgical repair, optimal management includes a trial of nonoperative treatment in those suspected of having an SLAP lesion. 8,[12][13][14] The evolving indications for arthroscopic repair of type II SLAP lesions depend on several patient factors, summarized in Box 1. In general, the patients with the strongest indications for and best expected outcomes after SLAP repair are active younger ...
... acute, chronic or recurrent). 1 Posterior instability accounts for approximately 2-10% of shoulder instability cases and can manifest itself on a spectrum, ranging from mild subluxation to frank dislocation. [2][3][4][5][6] Causation is often multifactorial including, glenoid retroversion, trauma, posterior labral tears, hyperlaxity and poor neuromuscular control. [7][8][9] Due to the wide spectrum of clinical manifestations and aetiologies, it can be challenging to determine appropriate indications for treatment. ...
... The term scapulahumeral rhythm refers to the 2:1 ratio of glenohumeral to scapulothoracic motion. Full 180° elevation of the humerus cannot be achieved without 60° of upward rotation by the scapula on the thoracic spine [5]. ...

... A common biomechanical application of robotic systems is the investigation of joint kinematics and kinetics following simulated ligamentous injury and surgical repair [2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][15][16][17][18]. Some investigations report removal of the cadaveric joint from the robotic system to perform the sectioning of stabilizing structures or the surgical reconstruction [19,20]. ...
